Can High Blood Pressure Cause Motion Sickness
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
I read that Zoloft (sertraline) causes qt prolongation. I have high blood pressure & possible heart disease (still being tested). Would Zoloft (sertraline) be safe?
Probably: Zoloft (sertraline) has been used to treat many depressed people who have heart disease. At usually prescribed doses, it does not prolong qt interval. The case reports of cardiac conduction delays have been related to overdose. Since you are concerned, you should ask your cardiologist about your ekg.See 1 more doctor answer

Depends upon: What you mean by head problems. High blood pressure, not controlled, can cause headaches, blindness, and even strokes and death. Is that enough problems to stimulate you to take better control of your blood pressure? By the way, hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) can increase your risks of diabetes and cholesterol abnormalities. There are other better blood pressure medications available.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Extremely high blood pressures (usually greater than 200 mmhg for the top number) can result in "end organ" damage including changes to the retinal arteries and short-term vision changes. If you're concerned that your high blood pressure is changing your vision, you should see your doctor to discuss treatment options.
Get evaluated soon: Yes, uncontrolled hypertension can cause several concerning symptoms. If blackouts are occurring, medical attention is needed asap. The risk for stroke, heart attack, congestive heart failure, aortic dissection are all emergencies that can be provoked by very high bp. There are excellent meds to lower bp, both in the acute phase in the hospital and as a routine outpatient med. Please get evaluated.See 1 more doctor answer
Several mechanisms: Hypertension (HTN) can resulting in ischemia and abnormality of the conduction system of the heart which may slow heart rate. After a head injury HTN and a slow heart rate are signs that there may be increase in intra-cranial pressure. There is also a phenomena where correcting a slow heart rate might resolve HTN see link below. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/7457024 edit.
Both: Both can cause both, buts its good medicne to exclude organic causes first before you blame your hypertension on anxiety.
Yes, indeed. Get Rx: Branch and central vein occlusion are a known cause of blurred vision in hypertensive patients. Early treatment of both the hypertension and the vein occlusion is essential because damage to the retina can be irreversible if ignored. Early treatment with growth factor inhibitors and steroids can restore vision. Other types of damage can occur to the retina with chronic high blood pressure.

Alternatively, some blood pressure medications can cause swelling (norvasc) or there could be a problem with your veins in the legs or your heart causing the swelling. Anytime you have sudden changes in swelling you should be checked.
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) (Definition)
Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure occurs when blood pressure is 140/90 or higher. A systolic blood pressure (top number) is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum contraction and a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum relaxation. ...Read more
